Oxygen Sensor Replacement Service & Cost

What is the Oxygen Sensor all about?

With each new model year, manufacturers are adding more oxygen sensors to better manage engine operation. Some high performance engines have an oxygen sensor for each cylinder as well as one for the rear of each catalytic convertor. The sensors are located either underneath the hood or underneath the car. The oxygen sensors are connected (screwed) to the exhaust pipe, either in front or back of the catalytic converter. The front (upstream) sensors measure the amount of oxygen in the exhaust system. The purpose of the front oxygen sensor(s) is to measure how rich or lean the gases are as the gases exit the combustion chamber. Depending upon whether the exhaust gas is lean (high in oxygen content) or rich (low in oxygen content), the amount of fuel entering the engine is adjusted by the engine management computer to try and maintain an ideal mixture that produces the lowest emissions output from the catalytic convertor.

Rear (downstream) sensors are located behind the catalytic converter. The purpose of the rear oxygen sensor(s) is to monitor the oxygen content of the exhaust gases leaving the catalytic convertor.

If one or more of the oxygen sensors are faulty, your car may not pass the emissions test. If you drive your car with a faulty oxygen sensor, you may get poor gas mileage and it can damage the catalytic converter.

Oxygen Sensor-MATROX-1

Keep in mind:

  • Many oxygen sensors are damaged by leaking oil or coolant. If that is the case, the cause of that leak needs to be identified and repaired, or else the replacement oxygen sensor will be damaged as well.
  • New vehicles require specific oxygen sensors, and not the universal sensors that were common prior to 1996.

How it's done:

  • Scan the computer in the car for codes.
  • Inspect for vacuum leaks and holes in the exhaust system.
  • Remove and replace the oxygen sensor if it is bad.
  • Check electrical connections.
  • Check for proper operation of oxygen sensors.
  • Clear diagnostic codes.
  • Test drive car.

Our recommendation:

Keep up with the tune-ups. If check engine light is on, don't drive the car too long without getting it inspected. If check engine light is flashing, pull over and get the car towed to avoid costly repairs. Ask the mechanic to inspect the vacuum hoses and leaks in the exhaust system. If the vacuum hose or exhaust system is leaking, it will display an oxygen sensor fault code. Replacing an oxygen sensor may not fix the problem.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Oxygen Sensor?

  • Check Engine light is on.
  • Car is getting poor gas mileage.
  • Emission test fails.

How important is this service?

Your vehicle has multiple oxygen sensors, and they all help the car run optimally. The front sensors measure how much oxygen is in the exhaust stream to measure how rich or lean the gases leaving the gas chamber are. The rear sensors measure the oxygen content of the gases as they leave the catalytic converter. The oxygen sensors then relay this information to your vehicle’s electronic control unit, so that it can adjust as necessary. Because cars depend on an ideal fuel-to-air ratio to function optimally, the oxygen sensors are leaned on for engine performance. When your oxygen sensors fail your car will run less smoothly, get worse mileage, and have worse emissions.

It's not so much a bad review about Patrick, but my entire experience. After reading the positive reviews, I called yourmechanic thinking i could save on towing expenses and have the diagonstic charge of $70 rolled into the final repaircost. I didn't like that i had to give my credit card info before the service was even done, but i gave it anyway. My appt was at night and I asked if the mechanic would have proper lighting and everything he needed to make the repair. I was told yes. Patrick arrived after dark with a flashlight! That's it. He looked under the hood, and charged the battery. The car still didn't start. He checked some fluid levels. Then he said "it's probably a timing belt or an engine head gasket." Then he tells me his company doesn't even do those repairs! Why did I spend this money! I would have been better off towing it to someone who could fix it. I am disappointed I wasn't told this in advance. Dude comes over, shines his light, says I can't fix it, give me $70 bucks. Great work if you can get it. The next day, I do some calling around. I call another garage highly rated by patrons. I talk to someone there and describe my experience. They tell me your car (Mazda Tribute) DOESN'T EVEN HAVE A TIMING BELT! They also didn't understand how it could be a head gasket if the engine light/overheating light never came on. I really don't know what to think. Luckily I had a $20 dollar off coupon, so it only cost me $50 for someone to shine a light under my hood and tell me, "sorry,nothing i can do!" I am not that happy about it. It doesn't seem fair or right. Now, Patrick was a super nice guy and I believed everything he told me at the time. He didn't give off the vibe that he was trying to rip me off or anything and he gave me a ride down the street on his way. Still, I don't like the fact that the initital contact didn't tell me there were certain things that they couldn't handle, and I'm a little surpirsed that Patrick brought up the timing belt when my car doesn't have one. You would think someone with over 20 years experience would know that. If you need an oil change done on sight, use the coupon for $18.95 and go for it. If you have something seriously wrong with your car, you are in the wrong place.
